05 STI upright/strut rebuild when OCD meets opportunity. pictures attached
Compliments of 22B05STI @ www.clubwrx.net
While driving back from Indianapolis to Las Vegas the rear strut noise I had became worse and I also started to get a bearing type noise that I thought was the right rear upright. I decided to take a look at everything and ended up stripping out the uprights and have them powder coated and also repainted the c.v joint housings and stripped and regreased the rear struts and fitted the STI strut mounts which are a harder rubber.
I also have new plastic fender liners and all the misc plastic pieces have been replaced in the wheel wells. here are some of the pics of the project so far
here are the pieces of the rear suspension that are almost ready to go
The floor is one of the kits you buy from home depot etc, it is my inlaws place. I used to have a nice garage in Indiana, we owned that house for eight years so I had the garage all set up how I wanted it. when we settle down in one place again I will do something hopefully better than this.. also another one of my projects in the picture a 94 Lola Indycar
